Harry Belafonte – Twelve Days Of Christmas lyrics

On the first day
Of Christmas
My true love
Sent to me
A partridge
In a pear tree

On the second day
Of Christmas
My true love
Sent to me
Two turtledoves
And a partridge
In a pear tree

On the third day
Of Christmas
My true love
Sent to me
Three French hens
Two turtledoves
And a partridge
In a pear tree

On the fourth day
Of Christmas
My true love
Sent to me
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtledoves
And a partridge
In a pear tree

On the fifth day
Of Christmas
My true love
Sent to me
Five golden rings
Five golden rings
Four calling birds
Three french hens
Two turtledoves
And a partridge
In a pear tree

On the sixth day
Of Christmas
My true love
Sent to me
Six geese a-laying
Five golden rings
Five golden rings
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtledoves
And a partridge
In a pear tree

On the seventh day
Of Christmas
My true love
Sent to me
Seven swans
A-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five golden rings
Five golden rings
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtledoves
And a partridge
In a pear tree

On the eighth day
Of Christmas
My true love
Sent to me
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five golden rings
Five golden rings
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtledoves
And a partridge
In a pear tree

On the ninth day
Of Christmas
My true love
Sent to me
Nine ladies dancing
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five golden rings
Five golden rings
Four calling birds
Three french hens
Two turtledoves
And a partridge
In a pear tree

On the tenth day
Of Christmas
My true love
Sent to me
Ten lords a-leaping
Nine ladies dancing
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five golden rings
Five golden rings
Four calling birds
Three french hens
Two turtledoves
And a partridge
In a pear tree

On the eleventh day
Of Christmas
My true love
Sent to me
I sent eleven
Pipers piping
Ten lords a-leaping
Nine ladies dancing
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five golden rings
Five golden rings
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtledoves
And a partridge
In a pear tree

On the twelfth day
Of Christmas
My true love
Sent to me
Twelve drummers drumming
Eleven pipers piping
Ten lords a-leaping
Nine ladies dancing
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five golden rings
Five golden rings
Four calling birds
Three french hens
Two turtledoves
And a partridge
In a pear tree
And a partridge
In a pear tree
